Iggy Azalea finally confirmed she's a first-time mom after secretly welcoming a baby boy with fellow rapper Playboi Carti.
The "Fancy" rapper made headlines in late April when rumors surfaced that the couple welcomed a child.
The couple refused to confirm the baby news, but on Wednesday, Iggy, who turned 30 on Sunday, insisted she only stayed silent because she wanted to keep her personal life private.
In a message on her Instagram Story timeline, she writes, "I have a son. I kept waiting for the right time to say something, but it feels like the more time passes, the more I realize I'm always going to feel anxious to share news that giant with the world."
"I want to keep his life private but wanted to make it clear he is not a secret," she continues, "& I love him beyond words".
Iggy stopped short of revealing the infant's name or further details about his birth.

Iggy and 23-year-old Carti, real name Jordan Carter, have been dating since 2018.
The Atlanta-born rapper is best known for his hits "Broke Boi" and "Fetti."
Prior to dating Iggy, Carti dated Blac Chyna in 2017.
Ladies you're in luck if you hoped rapper Playboi Carti was on the market.
On Friday, Azalea, 29, announced the breakup of her relationship with the 23-year-old rapper.
In the since-deleted post on Instagram, the "Fancy" one-hit wonder announced "I'm single."
The split comes amid rumors that Azalea was pregnant with Carti's baby. According to one media outlet, Azalea was six months pregnant. But the Aussie rapper dismissed the rumor by posting a bikini photo.

Last month, the couple's Atlanta mansion was burglarized while Azalea was home. The burglar made off with $366,000 worth of Carti's jewelry, leaving Azalea's things untouched.
Carti downplayed rumors that he and Azalea broke up after the burglary.
"I got one more thing to say too. I wanna just do this for my girl. Me and my girl never broke up. That shit fake," he said during a performance in September. Carti added, "And I ain't gon' lie - I'm lucky as hell!"
